Caitlyn Jenner, the “female” face of Olympian and ex-male Bruce Jenner, would seem to be wishy-washy on more than just the meaning of gender.
In an interview with Ellen Degeneres, the openly gay talk show host and loud proponent of the gay agenda, Jenner was less than enthusiastic about the topic of gay “marriage”. She said that while her views have “changed” she identifies not only as a woman but as a Republican Conservative. Pretty sure that a shock ran through the studio audience at that particular pronouncement.
To quote Jenner:
“I have to admit that I remember 15 years ago, 20 years ago, whenever it was the whole gay marriage issue came up at first, I was not for it, I thought, I’m a traditionalist. I’m older than most people in the audience. I like tradition; and it’s always been between a man and a woman, and I’m thinking, I don’t quite get it.”
Considering Jenner’s efforts to advocate for other transexual people and her placement in the LGBTQ community, Degeneres was not impressed by the answer she got. What is more confusing is how someone who has changed their entire identity and body through hormones and surgeries to suit a mental preference could consider themselves a “Traditionalist”.
She goes on to dig herself into hole and discuss how though she is not rallying support for gay “marriage” she does not, “…ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness.’ That’s not my job, okay? If that word – ‘marriage’ – is really, really that important to you, I can go with it.”
Just like how being a woman is really, really that important to you, so we should just go with it?
Though the full interview is set to air Tuesday, gay celebrities have been quick to criticize Jenner and point out the irony. Degeneres spoke on Jenner’s lukewarm support during a Howard Stern interview. She makes note of the fact that she doesn’t think Jenner should be having “judgement” against gays and “marriage” if she is going to parade around as a woman. The gay star who has been married to her wife, Portia de Rossi, for seven years, said that marriage is more than just a word and that the gay community wants, “the same thing”, as traditional marriage.
“The same thing”, Ellen, would be marriage between a man and a woman. You do not want the same thing.
Caitlyn Jenner’s E! Reality series which premiered on July 26th of this year already has plummeting ratings despite the outrage concerning the unisex Halloween costume of Jenner made available this summer.
The public’s opinion of Jenner seems to be as wishy-washy as her views on gender and marriage. It is doubtful that the reality TV star and Transgender Activist will be going anywhere out of the public eye any time soon.
